Take the complexity out of teaching your child how to read.

Our phonetic reading blocks are inspired by the Montessori philosophy to offer toys and material to children that are open-ended, multi-sensory, and natural. These rotating wooden phonetic blocks introduce the magic of letter blending and make learning to read, decode, and rhyme, straight-forward and empowering.

All without the screens.

Versatile, Multi-level, & Designed for Self-Guidance

Real-life image flash cards for toddlers give a real understanding of the world. Boundable, double-sided, heavy-duty flashcards grow with your child's reading ability. One side features the word, picture, and is color-coded by vowel, the other side features just a picture. Designed for self-correction, independent play, and endless game ideas.

Traditional, Familiar Print

Our blocks feature a plain, traditional print already familiar to your beginner reader. This is so he or she can confidently build upon existing knowledge. Our carefully selected letter combinations maximize the number of decodable words familiar to young children, which creates a cycle of positive affirmation as they master word after word.

Plastic-free & Durable

Forget the plastic! Take care of the earth by choosing sustainably-harvested wooden toys that extend past the life of many plastic toys. We choose beech wood for its extreme hardiness and beauty. Our blocks are safe and non-toxic, and exceed U.S. safety regulations.

Certified ASTM F963 & CA Prop 65 compliant.


Grace K.

My preschooler loves her reading blocks. She can now "blend" together different letters and read simple words. She feels so much accomplishment with what she can read because it's so easy to pick up on the sounds and patterns the letters make together.

Jen H.

My kindergartener can't get enough of this! She thinks it’s a toy, but I know it’s helping her learn, so it’s a win win. She loved using it to teach her little brothers- another total mom win! This will be something all my kids will enjoy for a long time- I couldn’t recommend it more if I tried!

Kamila B.

These blocks + the flashcards are a hit. I looked at different brands for the blocks, and this was the only one that went above and beyond just selling the blocks. The flashcards and tote bag together add so much value.

⭐ This is for you if:  ⭐

✔️ You have a toddler, preschooler, pre-K, or kindergartener, or anyone aspiring to read. 
✔️ You have no idea how to introduce reading.
✔️ You do have an idea and have decided that phonics is the best first step.
✔️ You don't want to deal with cutting and pasting your own CVC movable material.
✔️ You are looking for something classic, multi-sensory, portable, and easy to clean up.
✔️ You are looking for a worthwhile "educational" toy and gift for your child.
✔️ You believe self-exploration and independence within guidelines is the best way to learn.

Why phonics?

Studies show that phonics instruction greatly improves a child's foundation for word recognition, spelling, and reading comprehension.  Our Spin-and-Read Blocks are inspired by the Montessori philosophy that children learn best when given the opportunity for self-directed exploration. Our educational blocks introduce reading through letter blending using simple CVC (consonant-vowel-consonant) words.

Why travel-friendly?

Because don't we need more travel-friendly toys? You know, the kind that doesn't have a million pieces that fall all over the floor of the car? Or the kind that doesn't make noise? Or the kind that doesn't leave Mom or Dad to clean up?

Yup, we get it. We're parents too. So we made sure that our design is parent-friendly, kid-friendly, and travel-friendly. With our boundable flashcards and tote bag, this toy literally cleans up on its own!

Why 3-letter words?

Three-letter words are English words in its simplest, most elementary form. These words are also called CVC words or consonant-vowel-consonant decodable words. Learning the patterns in words helps establish a strong foundation for advancing reading skills.

We're talking about words like H-A-T and D-I-P and F-U-N. Words that form enough of the English language that your child will soon be able to start reading short stories based mainly on these decodable words. Talk about a confidence booster!
